Adlerian Psychotherapy gives an account of Adlerian therapy and counselling from its origins to the present day, and proposes an advanced version of the theory. The main principles and concepts of Adler's thinking are re-examined from a contemporary perspective, placing them in the context of other contemporary approaches. Adler's techniques are described then applied to an understanding of what an Adlerian approach to family life would look like, using clinical examples throughout. The authors analyse the possible contribution of Adlerian theory in the context of the challenges of postmodern thought and postmodern society. It will be invaluable to professionals, practitioners and students of counselling and psychotherapy.

Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the tenth edition of Corey's best-selling book helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces students to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, postmodern, and integrative approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to two cases (Stan and Gwen). With his trademark style, he shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style.

"Based on a deeply held belief that theory does matter in effective helper-client interactions, this text examines with clarity and wit fourteen theories of counseling and psychotherapy. At the beginning of each chapter, readers "meet" a new client through a case example. The author then presents the theory's basic philosophical assumptions; its beliefs about what motivates human behavior; its central constructs; its picture of how humans develop; its ideas about what constitutes mental health and dysfunction; its perspective on how our relationships with those around us impact our functioning; and its view of how our behavior, thoughts, and emotion impact our functioning. Throughout each chapter, the author immediately illustrates the application of a construct or process by showing how it relates to the client case described at the beginning of the chapter, demonstrating the translation of each theory into practice."--BOOK JACKET.
